Just choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

1 unused notecard with envelope

10 stickers (can be a sheet, or loose, none smaller than a US penny)

1 unused postcard

2 handmade envelopes

1 foreign coin or paper money

3 washi tape samples (at least 12 in. each) or 1 roll of unused washi tape

1 bookmark

2 hot drink sachets (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc...)

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/ matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

1 pen (can be an advertising pen, gel pen, artist pen, decorative pen)

10 used postage stamps

1 unused forever stamp

1 ATC (Artist Trading Cards, they are for trading!)

Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages,ect)

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

3 - 4x6 decorative recipe cards

2 recipes on decorative recipe cards

3 scrap pieces of decorative paper (at least ATC size)

1 small gift bag

1 fridge magnet

1 sheet of 30 address labels with your partners address

1 souvenir from where you live

A Valentine item

A profile based gift

What to do:

Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items. This is not a profile based swap, it is senders choice, but do check your partners profile, as you may have something that your partner will love!

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN). Must have logged into swapbot within 3 days of partners being assigned. No recent/unexplained low ratings.

I will angel only AFTER you have tried to contact your partner and have rated them a 1, but it is up to you to contact me.

If anyone would like to help angel, I would appreciate it! please comment below or message me :)

NEWBIES please read: Partners will be assigned 1 day after the last day to sign up for the swap, the first of the month. Partners are assigned using an automatic computer system. Be sure to log into swap-bot within 3 days of partners being assigned, or you will be banned from the swap, also be sure to come back after the first of the month to see whom your partner is, by clicking the See the partners you send to button.
